The 5 Brules (Bullsh*t Rules) That Are Ruining Your Life

Bullshit Rules Brules

Of late, I’ve been studying a number of programs from MindValley University, Vishen Lakhiani’s personal development company.

I found I could instantly relate to a new word that Vishen introduced in his book, The Code of the Extraordinary Mind.

The term is Brules’ – or “bullshit rules.”

As Vishen writes, “We all absorb the cultural norms of our society, but we often forget to question whether these are serving us — or limiting us.”

He goes on to explain why these “Brules” are so dangerous, and how to begin questioning the unconscious, insidious limiting beliefs you may be holding.

As someone who’s always been a non-conformist, I found this term especially fitting to describe the rules of society I discarded for the sake of my mental peace many years ago.

The Music Industry Is Broken. Can Entrepreneurial Thinking Save Musicians?

Guitarist Musician

 

A few days ago, I read this rather depressing article quoting Canadian singer-songwriter Danny Michel who reveals how music streaming services have devastated the music industry and hit virtually every working musician in some way.

As Danny revealed in a lengthy Facebook post, A peek behind the curtain: The expiration date on music, an artist earns $0.003 per play on Spotify.

Danny also revealed that sales for his song “Purgatory Cove” which was in the TOP 20 charts (CBC Radio 2 & 3) for 10 weeks and climbed to #3, earned him just $44.99 in 2018.

Now that’s a shocker, by any standard!

As someone who played music and loves it deeply, this made me really sad, because I want musicians to thrive and earn a good living from their art.

How The Words You Speak Subconsciously Sabotage Your Success

Self-Sabotage Words

Are the words you speak subconsciously sabotaging your dreams? Learn the language of self-sabotage and how to stop it.

Do you know why some people never succeed at getting what they want? Because they lack self-awareness and the mindset they need to succeed.

Language is a powerful motivator in helping us create the life we want. Words have a vibration – a frequency – that transfers energy to your resolve and either energizes or weakens it.

When we use empowering words and language, we create empowering circumstances around ourselves that allow us to manifest our goals.

If you want to know whether someone will succeed or not, just listen to the words they use about themselves and their dreams.

The language of self-sabotage and how to stop it

Most people don’t even realise that their words are subconsciously sabotaging their dreams and preventing them from getting what they desire the most.

What I Learned About Elon Musk From Ashlee Vance’s Book

Elon Musk Hot

Imagine that you’re a girl invited to the birthday party of a boy you’ve never met before. As soon as he lays eyes on you, he walks up and the first words out of his mouth are, “I think a lot about electric cars. Do you think about electric cars?”

Take a high school geek obsessed with rockets, solar power and colonizing other planets, brought up in a family and country where risk and adventure was a way of life, and you have Elon Musk – the ultimate nerd and adventurer. He’s Steve Jobs, Sheldon Cooper and Tony Stark, all rolled into one.

Elon Musk’s Early Life

An awkward bookworm and know-it-all as a child, Musk spent a miserable, friendless childhood being bullied in school and having the joy sucked out of his life by an unhappy father, at home.

To Be A Champion – Become A Child

Make Impossible Possible

Have you ever wondered what successful people have that makes them successful?

Well, let me tell you a secret. No one starts out as a Champion. Most of them started out like you and me.

So what is it that makes a Champion different from everybody else?

Champions have an attitude, a mindset that sets them apart from the rest. But most of these qualities are not exceptional.

Indeed each and every one of us possesses these qualities when we start out in life. But somewhere along the way, we tend to lose them and diminish our own potential.

Let me explain:

“The Eagle has landed.”

Those were the immortal words that Neil Armstrong spoke when he landed the lunar module on the surface of the moon on July 20, 1969, at 20:17 UTC.

I was born in 1970, into a world where humans had already landed on the moon. So I never saw the moon landing till years later, when they replayed parts of it on television and I was old enough to understand what it meant.

Then, I watched the movie, First Man, in which Ryan Gosling stars as Neil Armstrong. This Steven Spielberg-produced movie spans eight years from Armstrong’s early work as a naval aviator and test pilot leading up to the historic Apollo 11 mission.

As a sci-fi junkie and movie buff, I loved the movie, and there were a few things that became apparent as it played.
